Crazy things are happening around here!
- Caleb has learned to walk backwards, and now he’s doing this crazy moonwalking/shuffling backwards thing all the time. He hasn’t fallen over yet because he takes very, very tiny steps, but it’s just a matter of time.
- Some folks from Pilot Corporation in Japan came and visited our shop.
Crazy! I know!!
You may remember last year we were thrilled to have VP of Crestar, Pilot’s Canadian distributor, come and visit our shop. Robert laughed at Caleb and told us some funny stories and we were all warmed through and through.
Looking back on it, I had titled the blog post “A Visit From Pilot,” even though it was really Robert from Crestar visiting, because Crestar and Pilot are one. However, now it makes this blog post seem a bit less exciting, even though this time, we actually had people from Pilot Corp in Japan walk through our doors!
(Not that it wasn’t exciting have Robert come and visit… but having some folks from Pilot Japan is pretty crazy for us.)
Yoshio Wada and Hitoshi Takiushi came in from Japan to tour and visit the Jacksonville, Florida Pilot USA facility last week, and this week are in Montreal, Quebec, Canada to visit with Crestar.
I was a bit shocked when I got a call from Crestar letting me know that they would be coming down to Toronto and saying hello here at our shop!
Caleb was napping when the group stopped by early afternoon, and I was kind of hoping he would stay asleep for the entire visit, but I don’t think he’s going to be the kind of kid that likes to miss out on things. He woke up early and cranky in time to say hello and good-bye. Someone joked and called Caleb a “trouble-maker,” not knowing that Caleb is more of a “catastrophe-maker.”
It was great! We said hello, we talked a bit about what’s all happening and what’s to come. We already have some pretty big plans coming up with Pilot early next year, and I can’t wait to share everything with you.
Hitoshi took some photos of the shop, including some of Pilot gel and sign pens in our mismatched beakers and tea mugs and recycled coconut milk cans… Linda from Crestar suggested we look into the Pilot presentation displays 🙂
As a very, very fortunate coincidence, we had just gotten our signs installed last week!
